Zoophagic behaviour of anopheline mosquitoes in southwest Ethiopia: opportunity for malaria vector control
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Increased understanding of the feeding behaviours of malaria vectors is important to determine the frequency of human-vector contact and to implement effective vector control interventions. Here we assess the ...
Blood meal origins and insecticide susceptibility of Anopheles arabiensis from Chano in South-West Ethiopia
